Noyes 2nd Floor Gallery

Opening Artists Reception: Sunday, December 11, 2-5 p.m

Ortiz’s current work, “Landscapes Remixed: Recent Paintings,” is a series of paintings that reinterpret/reframe and update the landscape with a contrasting contemporary twist. He creates poetically contemporary landscapes that capture an array of subtle overlapping shapes, textures, light, scale, and heightened color relationships that are derived from the tradition of abstraction. This is achieved by juxtaposing layers of expressive brushstrokes, adding/subtracting patches of  at spaces for contemplation, building up light on a water’s surface and randomly framing areas by using a silhouetted image, e.g. a tree or  ora, to compose a unique space—shifting the composition by dividing the picture plane.


Admission to the Noyes Gallery is free and open to the public. These programs are sponsored by the City of Evanston and supported in part by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
